We got off to a slow start (15 minutes after we were seated before a server came to our table and then only because my husband went to the hostess to see why), but everything after that was wonderful. I enjoyed the best Lobster and Shrimp Mac and Cheese I've ever eaten. Other diners in our party were equally pleased with their dinners.

This is our 3rd visit. We love the restaurant and our server is fantastic. It was very hot on Sunday afternoon and all of the doors were closed. In this instance, the restaurant was too loud with the live entertainer.

This restaurant is a little hidden gem, nestled poolside inside the Parkshore Resort. My friends have eaten here several times. The setting is beautiful - like a tropical oasis with ponds, bridges and flowers everywhere. The back patio/porch is surrounded by hanging orchids and other plants. The other patio faces the beautiful pool, complete with waterfall. Ok, it's not just about the ambiance. The food is great, too. Barbeque ribs are excellent, tender and juicy, with just enough sauce. My friend had the grouper sandwich recently, and declared it cooked perfectly. The menu is large, but not overwhelmingly huge. And, the happy hour, best of all, provides house wine at $3.50 per glass, until 6 pm. Staff are friendly and welcoming, from the front reception area, to the bartenders, and wait staff. You feel like family. Oh, yes, there's excellent live entertainment in the main dining room - not sure if it's every night. We love, love, love this place - our favorite go-to restaurant.

I love this place but it's so loud you can't hear your table mates - do something about that or make more outdoor seating.

Freshly remodeled with a bright island theme. We went on a Sunday afternoon to hear Joey the Voice and enjoyed the entertainment as always. It was hard to order in that so many things looked good, we are anxious to go back and explore the menu further. The only disappointment was that they only serve the Bang Bang shrimp at the bar during happy hour, I would have gladly paid regular price for table seating but it wasn't even offered as an appetizer, (minor disappointment). Overall a fun place.

On open table requested outside seating. That was full when we arrived. Told I need to call for special requests as they take those first. Seating was bad as busy now and not outside we moved twice only to be by the singer guitar player. Food was very very slow in arriving to the table and burgers not cooked as requested.

Our server Chris was great and made sure everything was taken care of for us! The food wasn't outstanding but the menu had a lot of variety. The restaurant is in some sort of condo or apartment complex and the water view is of a man-made pond, not a bay or inlet.

We had to wait almost 40 minutes for a salad plus hunt down our waitress to pay. The “island rice” was regular brown rice with absolutely no flavor.
